Paris to Venice: One of Europe’s Best Night Trains

See the Alps in the moonlight on the night train from Paris to Venice, which was recently named one of Europe’s best night trains by Lonely Planet.

Lonely Planet, the well-respected travel guide, recently released its top picks for Europe’s night trains and second on the list was the popular international train linking Paris and Venice. Departing the so-called City of Love from either Paris Gare de Lyon or Bercy train station, you can travel through the night passed glorious natural wonders, such as the Alps and Italian Lakes, before arriving in the Floating City of Venice in the early morning.
